    Hi all if you were to take delivery of a new car. (As i have never had a brand spanker) how many kms roughly would you expect it to have on the clock?

          8KM - 20 is pretty normal but my last new car actually had 80km (subaru forester) which cheesed me off a bit. However, its been a great car and never missed a beat. Just had some KM's from test driving!

            if it has more than say 20, then they used it to get the lunches or worse to demo, like most new cars i am sure the dealer can reset the odometer to zero a few times so even if your car says just a few km's it could be 200km and been thrashed on a test drive.. they are such nice folk

              Mine had 10km on the ODO. Although, when I bought my Astra Sri over 5 years ago now, that was a demo which only had 50km on it when it was signed over to me, (and I drove 11 of those km on the test drive), with the salesman claiming that some of their new cars have more km on them than the "technically" demonstrator that I bought at that time, as he said that some new cars have as many as 150km on them.

                I always thought anything over 100klms cannot be sold as "NEW"??
                Having anything in between 5-20klms is nothing out of the ordinary.

                I doubt you'd ever find any dealer staff taking a new car to get lunches, etc.. there are at least 20 or so demonstrators in the lot, they'd be taken instead!

                Tampering with mileage on a vehicle is illegal, no dealer would clock up 200 or so klms then drop them down prior to sale! (Not that you could, unless the vehicle was taken to a speedo shop) Why would anyone want to risk criminal charges, loss of job, or even worse, loss of franchise???

                  incorrect para man... some vehicles can be reset a couple of times when new but only for limited km, my vw for example could be done from the dash with a few button sequences... if you go over the alloted km's (i think the vw was 80km) the there was no chance to do it again,it locks for good. but you could do it more than once, 2 or 3 from memory for the vw.

                  please call say a vw service department and confirm with them yourself, or maybe put a post on the vw webboards to confirm for yourself, you could also do a search. the cars pass adr's and the km that can be reset are minimal so don't know if it is illegal or not, but it is a feature and is done.

                    Our "new" NM had 300km on the clock when we took delivery, I was later told by another dealer that it should have been classified as a demo. I don't know if there is a legal cut off when a car cannot be called new anymore, does anyone know?

                      common sense i think is the yardstick.. 300km, they definitely used it as demo i would ask for a refund for a demo price..

                        I was told its new until its registered, then its a demo until its done 5000k then its second hand. Mine had 18ks on it when I got it.

                          I bought an NS that was in stock at the dealer and test drove it a couple of times before deciding to purchase. On the 2nd test drive, the dealer was adamant that I couldn't go over 50km as they would then have to sell as demo if I didn't buy it.

                          Hmm, in hindsite I should have put a few extra kays on it and then asked for a big discount
